Something Saturdays (9/27/14)

Short people problems--this is my life.

Saturday we went to a party for Michael's uncle's 60th birthday. It was fun to see his family-plus one of our waiters ended up being one of my 3rd cousins who I haven't seen in foreverrr (and it took us halfway through the evening to realize who each other were lol)! Sunday we had more family time-we saw Michael's mom's family and then went to visit with a few people from my dad's side who I love and haven't seen for awhile!

I had my final florist appointment this week! Still waiting on some quotes from people, but I think I have a good idea of who we're going to go with. I also ordered a few wedding related things (flower girl baskets, my shoes, etc.) and framed the first engagement picture that we're going to put on the wall (which is the main part of getting our house together we still have to do--hanging stuff on the walls).

My wedding ring came in--which means I got to reunite with my engagement ring! It is now resting safely on my ring finger, where it belongs :) And the gorgeous wedding band is safe in our safe with Michael's wedding band.

Michael's job is going super well! He had a work retreat on Friday and he had a blast. He completely loves his co-workers and bosses, so that's amazing. And his new schedule is working out great, too. We were actually able to go out to dinner together on Wednesday (and it was DELISH). Life is good :) I went to our old high school to visit his mom (a teacher there), his sister (a student), his best friend (also a teacher), and just other people that I encountered and it was really good to see people and tell everyone how happy we are and what a great decision it was to move back. :)

Law & Order: SVU-Yay for Liv being a mom and cute little Noah. And um....I am weirded out by the new guy. I don't know that I like him.

Modern Family-heheheee I loved the twist of Alex not being bad luck but just smart. Ah Dunphy's...I missed ya.

Parenthood-Dear Parenthood, I love you, please don't go! I love that Haddie is back (and I'm gonna say bisexual). I love that Amber is pregnant (fingers crossed for her and Ryan). I love that Sarah and Hank are back together (even if his daughter is a brat). I'm glad for a lot of things but I AM NOT HAPPY that Joel and Julia are not together and Julia is having a whatever with that dude from law school (who I'm sure is fine but NOT JOEL)!
